#inclusivekids - sounds wonderful

Sorry, I couldn't send this via de Q&A. This might seem like a basic question, but what would you say is the importance of diversity? Beyond raising racially-conscious kids. What would you say are the benefits?
Lucas Gonze
01:42:00
I’d be interested in the converse of that question - how to help my white kids prepare for their own micro aggressions, their own harms.
Katrina Jones
01:43:11
Lucas - can you please share more about preparing you rkids for their own microaggressions?
Lucas Gonze
01:47:31
I expect my white children to do some bad things to their friends of color. We whites have a way of doing that. How can I start that conversation?
Lucas Gonze
01:47:37
(Moved to Q&A)
Alice Enevoldsen
01:48:14
Yes! That's huge here in Seattle!
Katrina Jones
01:50:11
Thanks, Lucas

Alice Enevoldsen
01:54:22
Explicitly encourage kids to reach out and try to be friends with diverse people? That seems like it might lead to the "token minority" effect, or create an odd expectation for what friendship means. Comments?
Katrina Jones
01:54:36
How can I prepare my black children to respond to microaggressions and bias? And how would you suggest I address the parents of the kids who perpetuate microaggressions or discrimination?
Andrew & Melissa
02:00:38
Thanks, Nicole!
